Well, after being back on sale for less than a week, Warner Bros. Interactive are now offering refunds to Batman: Arkham Knight PC players who are still experiencing issues with the game. Of which, there are still quite a few. Originally released months ago, the saga of bringing the PC version of Arkham Knight to players has now reached the point where it has become one of the most troubled launches in gaming history.
Also unveiled at Paris Games Week was an updated look at Rayman creator Michel Ancel's new game, Wild. Taking place in a time before cars, planes and car/plane hybrids, Wild puts players in the role of a mystical Shaman (aka the local village GP) as they use nature and old fashioned mysticism to summon, ride, and even possess a number of different animals.
The sequel to the cult-hit action-RPG NieR, is headed exclusively to PlayStation 4 next year. From publisher Square Enix and Japanese action maestros PlatinumGames, NieR: Automata was unveiled at Paris Games Week, err, last week, alongside a new trailer. One with lots of footage of robots being sliced and shot at by a leather-clad female robot assassin. Or freedom fighter. Or warrior. Or soldier. Anyway, it's classic PlatinumGames.
Okay, so the next Mirror's Edge game was due in February of next year, which is surprising considering we haven't seen all that much on the game. It was actually slated to be released on the same day (or week) as Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Far Cry Primal. Early 2016 is shaping up to be a pretty busy time for gaming in general. So, with the release date for Mirror's Edge Catalyst now pushed to May 24, 2016, this extra time will no doubt mean a few extra coats of parkour polish.
Showcasing one of the more visually impressive locations in the upcoming Hitman, this stylish new trailer essentially doubles as an impressive promotional tool for the fictional Mediterranean coastal town of Sapienza. That is of course, until it turns out that the bald dude who clearly needs to trade-in his suit for some shorts and shades is actually a cold blooded killer. A Hitman if you will.
Which basically sums up the announcement, as all we really know at this stage is that it will let everyone's Mii communicate with other Miis in "a welcoming social environment, answering questions and sharing information to discover more about each other." Sounds a little bit like the Street Pass thing for the Nintendo 3DS. But as this will be free to play on existing smartphone devices, you can be sure that this is a huge move for Nintendo.
So yeah, the PC version of Batman Arkham Knight is now available. Again. After months of waiting, and following an initial launch that the Boy Wonder himself would call a "Holy Shambles Batman!", the game is back on Steam. And in a showing of good faith Warner Bros. are offering the entire Arkham library, for free, to those that purchase the game before November 16.
How badly do you want to play Fallout 4? Interested, Mildly Interested, Super Interested, or ineedsitnowdude.com? Well, just to make the 'not too long to go now' wait just that little bit harder comes a short 15 second video showcasing the Big Leagues perk. Sure, on paper the extra damage buff to melee attacks may not sound all that impressive, but now's not the time to get ahead of yourself.
